Yellow Bag Ministry

2023 Beneficiary: NPC’s Little Free Pantry

Northminster’s Mission Committee has decided to use the theme of ‘Food and Family’ for Northminster’s 2023 missions. The Mission Committee has decided that the Yellow Bag Ministry will focus on one mission project to support families by providing food and other items to stock NPC’s Little Free Pantry in our parking lot. The pantry was completed in Summer 2021 and is restocked daily (some days it is completely empty when the volunteer comes to restock it!).

We have heard from a neighbor how grateful he was that we were providing some relief for him and his family during these difficult times.

Please grab a yellow bag, fill it with some of the items listed below, and return the filled bag to NPC.
